Default A couple of my "Rattle Can" paint jobs

First is my TC3 chassis with a HPI Porsche 911 Turbo body. It's painted with Tamiya pink/gold iridesant backed with Tamiya black, with the front hood and fenders using Tamiya white. The Patron Tequila is and ad from a magazine using 3M artists tack adhesive to glue it to the inside of the body. The stickers are from Autographics. The color change in sunlight is really neat. The windows were painted with Tamiya smoke and are translucent.






The second one is my RC10LSS pan car with a Peugeot 905B high downforce body
On this one I used Tamiya white and black w/ Autographics stickers, from a bygone era.

Very nice work. Im interested in this 3m product you use. So I can glue a design inside and paint over it? Does it show the boarders real bad?

Default 3M adhesive

ELEX300,

This is what I use to glue the pictures to the inside of the body:


I wash the body to get rid of any mold release....then lightly sand it with 400 grit paper, wash again and then spray the "pretty side" of the art work and position and apply firmly to the inside of the body. I go back and smooth it with a soft towel pressing down hard especially the edges. Here are some others, one on another car and the other as a trial.
